Episode Info

Episode Info: Imagine giving the gift to your kids of them being able to follow their calling, whatever it is. Maybe they want to be a social worker, maybe they want to be a missionary, maybe they want to be a world traveler. Right now, if they go get a marketing degree or an accounting degree or whatnot, they can't do it. They don't have that freedom. Imagine them having the ability to follow their heart and their freedom, not worrying about money because they know how to go into the markets and just take it out at will. That's what option trading, the way we do it, gives you that opportunity, that ability.   Good morning, Genius Nation! Woo. That was my tribute to Robin Williams and Good Morning, Vietnam. I loved Robin Williams. He was a great actor. I didn't think he was always funny. He was very funny, not always. Amazing actor. I liked his more serious roles a lot, as well. Recently, we just, on Netflix the other day, I was just flipping through and they said, "Hey, Dead Poet's Society." I was like, "Oh man. I'm going to put that on my list because I'm going to watch that one, man." I remember that one. That was one of the movies that really shaped or ... It's one of my favorite movies. I don't know how well I have lived up to its message. When I saw it, I was young. I don't know how old I was. We saw it in the theater, with my parents. I didn't get the message. Only later on, did I get it. If you haven't seen the movie, I'm going to spoil it in this. I'm going to spoil it for you today. It's an awesome, awesome movie. "Gather the rosebuds while ye may." I don't remember the poet who said that, but it's an amazing line and it sums up ... That line sums up the whole movie. Basically, in Dead Poet's Society, Robin Williams is a teacher. He goes to, I think it's a prep school. They're not in college yet, but it's a boarding school for really rich high schoolers. Either that, or it's like some small little college, a liberal arts college somewhere. He is a teacher there. I think he's an English teacher, and he takes the class, and it's all boys. The whole school, it's an all boy school. He takes the boys, and these guys are ... They look pretty rich, they look like nerds, virgins probably most of them. Nothing really adventurous about them. He takes them to this trophy case in this school and there's this picture of one of the older teams that, decades ago, where they were standing there with their little football uniforms on or something. At that time, they didn't have helmets and pads and whatnot, so they're just wearing these little leather caps on their heads and cleats. I think they had cleats.  He's telling them to look at that picture, to really look in the eyes of the people that were in that picture. Every single one of the people in that picture is already dead. The message that those people, those dead people have, for these young kids, is to gather the rosebuds while ye may. Meaning, to carpe diem or seize the day. Don't let a day go by where it...
